Lost wax kilncasting has a reputation for being complex, messy, risky, and even dangerous. The truth is that some (not all) of those descriptions are true. But that’s what makes it great! Nathan has been using these methods in a small space for years. Join him in this five-day workshop to learn how to exploit the benefits of lost wax kilncasting, and do so cleanly, in a small studio. This workshop focuses on kilncasting thin-walled, truly functional glass vessels using the lost wax approach to mold making. Along the way, you'll learn how to blend glass frits and powders to develop a personalized color pallet for kilncasting projects. Daily activities will include demonstrations, lectures, and plenty of hands-on work time. On the fourth day, all students will tour OnGrade Studio (Nathan’s workshop) to discuss studio setup.
All skill levels are welcome, but those new to working with their hands should be prepared to be challenged.
